    Democracy at Risk: Holocaust and Human Behavior

    Studying the Holocaust using Facing History’s approach allows students to wrestle with profound moral questions while fostering their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement—all of which are critical for sustaining democracy. This seminar is intended for middle and high school teachers.

    About Blended Seminars:
    Especially for educators who have demanding schedules! A week before the face-to-face event, participants begin their seminar work online in an interactive course. They then meet in person for three days. 

    Online Modules:
    7.10.18 - 7.16.18

    7.17.18 - 7.19.18
    8:00 am - 3:30 pm
